Testing  Well  Water


Professional Laboratory Testing

Professional laboratory testing is the gold standard for comprehensive well water analysis.


These tests can detect a wide range of contaminants, including heavy metals, microorganisms, minerals, and more.

Here are top 3 methods of testing well water:

Why choose  Professional Lab  Testing?

Provides precise results with concentrations

Ideal for niche contaminants like radiologicals and VOCs

Detects a broad range of contaminants

Convenient process with reliable labs like SimpleLab Tap Score

Use a DIY Test Kit


Convenient and affordable option for initial water quality assessment

Detect common contaminants like lead, nitrate, hardness, and bacteria

Provide instant results, but may not be as comprehensive

Dip a test strip and wait according to instructions

Compare colors for contaminant presence

Collect a water sample from your faucet

How to Use a DIY  Test Kit

Use a TDS Meter

Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) meters measure the concentration of dissolved substances in water.


Some meters can also test for other parameters like organic carbon and conductivity.

How Often to Test Well Water 

Experts advise annual well water tests for nitrates, bacteria, pH, TDS, and suspected contaminants.

Also consider testing after geological changes, repairs, or if water characteristics change.
